This was one of the highlights of our trip. We were ALONE on the south part of the beach, with just one other family way on the other end. Watched eagles perched on logs in the water, flying around, and two huge juvenile bald eagles...More

Was able to see plenty of eagles in the distance, across the river. Many flying high in the sky, while others were nested in the trees!

We hiked the paths for a few hours - mostly shaded, mostly flat. The beach is expansive. And we saw so. many. eagles. Up close, flying right by us, in the water - everywhere.

The birds like the low tide and the flats for picking at fish - not necessarily swooping down to catch them! Soooo many eagles in one place. At high tide - only two!

We were able to get close enough to eagles to fill the frame. These are the best eagle photos I gotten in my 3 previous trips to Alaska!

Never seen so many bald headed eagles in one place. Worth staying a while to see them flying and feeding. Bear sightings are possible en route

Worth a visit if you have a car and love seeing eagles. Eagles sitting on the beach, on rocks, any branch, flying by at eye level. Neat experience for us from other areas.

Eagle beach is at the other end of Juneau compared to where I am. It's so worth the drive! It's so pretty and you can walk along the beach or on a trail.
